Comedians could fall foul of Scottish hate crimes proposal, lawyers warn
Comedians at the world-famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe could end up in court if they make jokes about LGBT+ people that fall foul of a proposed hate crimes law in Scotland, lawyers have warned.

Under the new law being considered by the Scottish parliament, existing hate crime legislation that covers race would be extended to LGBT+ and intersex people, as well as adding provisions on age, disability and religion.

"It's up to the police to enforce the law, but the way things are going at the moment, it would certainly catch some of the more offensive jokes," Iain Buchan of Glasgow-based law firm Gay Lawyers told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on Friday. ...

When even John Cleese is concerned about "Cancel Culture," you know there's a problem:

Progressives eliminated humor as an American pass time. Since Covid, all late night hosts would be best served if they went home and didn’t show up on television. And to think people didn’t like Jay Leno. Inoffensive, not mean, and not filled with alienating 50% much less 38% of anyone who didn’t march, fists clenched, spewing filth, and interviewing communists or people who have no sense. Yeah, good old boring Jay Leno, last guy I watched on late night. At my age, it’s best I go to bed early.

Perhaps they could make jokes about "normal" people instead.
After all that's who is hated and discriminated against these days.

For Example:
Did you hear the one about the person who actually had morals?

Or:
Did you hear the one about a man who called his partner a 'wife'?

Or :
Did you hear the one about the Archbishop who turned out to be really born again? He had to give up Liberalism and read the Bible for the first time. So the church sacked him.

And since this is about Scotland's "laws"??
Did you hear the one about the nationalist voter who voted for the SNP and got federalism instead of nationalism.
(Which btw is actually true)

Good point. And it applies to pranks, too.

I concluded that categorical jokes (say, about the Jewish American Princess) are for insiders only.

There are some on here that need to revisit Jesus’s Sermon on the mound and allow the Holy Spirit to teach them a few lessons on real Christian love and what it actually means.
Jesus warned not to hate our enemies and brethren. For one thing it sets us up to be judged by God when we stand in judgment of others and say all kinds of evil against them. And hatred in the heart leads to other things including murder.
An example of this in recent news: A man dressed as a FedX driver, went to the home of a known woman Federal Judge and killed her son and wounded her husband. She happened to be in the basement at the time. The reason for the attack, he hated feminists and that included his own mother and we know that because he had written on social media his thoughts on the matter. Killed himself later. Extreme, not really as I have witnessed the same thing without the attack physically, just mentally.

Does this mean an end to mother-in-law jokes also?

Or Englishman, Scotsman and Irishmen jokes?

Since my conversion I have not liked jokes anyway. They normally involve not loving someone, which is the antithesis of Christianity.
